Fantastic. I'm sure this will reveal my phenomenal ignorance, but I just found this show a little while ago, thanks to a forum thread on, I think, China Riders.

Five-star China Rider, terrific Passenger, riveting Terrapin (for folks like me who have a soft spot for it, though I know that's not everyone), and much more. One thing that I really like about Fall '79 is the extent to which Phil often seems to be so prominent and "on." I think he'd just gotten some new toy -- a new kind of subwoofer? -- and I wonder if that's at least part of the reason. Anyway, great stuff in this show ...


China Cat Sunflower-> I Know You Rider, Mama Tried-> Mexicali Blues, Peggy-O, Cassidy, Easy To Love You-> Althea, Passenger, Alabama Getaway-> Greatest Story Ever Told, Ship of Fools, Terrapin Station-> Playin' In The Band-> Drums-> Lost Sailor-> Saint Of Circumstance-> Wharf Rat-> Sugar Magnolia, E: One More Saturday Night

Hey Rose--I know it's just like me to turn every thread to "all about me", so in keeping with that approach, I have to say that this date brings back a flood of memories, primarily nonDEAD, BUT with one DEAD connection: while home for Thanksgiving, fall 79, my little sister and I planned our "run" for the Dec NY shows at OAK Col, as always...the Boys had moved from Winterland, of course, and Donna was gone, so "boys" fits again I suppose, but it was a wonderful time in my life. We either scored the tickets or at least planned what nights we could go, and which family members could make which nights. We ended up taking our other sister, and my wife to be's brothers and sisters (some of them anyhow) for a couple of the late Dec shows that next month...

I was happily in love, and our families were actually bonding together over the DEAD; we even had the last of a large "taping party" in which we swapped our "new favs" (get this--from 76, 77, and 78; funny for me, eh?).

Thanksgiving is always a time I can recall just where I was and who I was with...played a great deal of basketball that weekend, but only Flow will relate to that special Bay Area activity.

An exceptionaly well Played China/Rider. The segue between the two songs is glorious as the ensemble locks in much like the 1971 Allman Brothers Band. And this peformance of IKYR might be the best ever!

I really dont care much for 1979 Grateful Dead, but this is a fine show with several stand-out songs. The performance of Passenger is a particularly excellent rendition and it's perhaps eclipsed only by the Passenger from exactly one year to day earlier in 1978...

Very mellow, of course, being '76, and really captivating if you like to hear Phil high in the mix. Which all sensible people should :-)

Very nice. Wish I could hear Phil like this more often. Laid back is a nice description for this show. Thanks for the link. "When Phil's on the bands on"

Hello AR . Welcome back .

Golden Hall in the fall of '79 . The C/R deserves its high praises . Don't forget about the Alabama->GSET to open frame two . Terrapin and WR also get a mention .Not the first , but among my first tapes .

I will be checking on this one shortly. Not sure if I have heard this one or not. So many shows, so little time and all. SDH had mentioned, in a thread yesterday, his eager anticipation for this one. I am sure it will be something exceptional based on that.

If CH comes out and says he likes a 79 show, you know you've go something special. As indicated above, this C>R may be the most powerful out there. Phil's Pearl Harbor re-enactment will take the paint off your walls.

The one and only drawback is Jerry's voice sounds like he's been gargling rusty spark plugs. Does not bode well for Terrapin. I know many of you like the tune, but when Jerry sounds like Jerry Lewis, I've got to hit "skip".

Oh stop it. I like that Terrapin, and now you've gone and put that Jerry Lewis image in my head! Sheesh. Did you come up with Fozzie Bear Choking on a Hot Dog, too? And then there's "I'm gonna go for the hippo show ..."

Yes, it was his nephew's comment, as I recall. An all-time classic.

I contribute so little of value around here, I feel rather childishly compelled to pipe up and say that was my nephew Jim who heard "the hippo show."

I don't even know who 'uj' is - is there an uncle john in the house?

Aha, so much for Micah's memory (and mine)! Credit for the hippo goes to Fenario and his nephew. I'm picturing dancing hippos instead of dancing bears ...
